Looks like I'll end up seeing 9 shows this year .... which might count as a good score for an Edinburgh local

2 great shows today: Key Change at Summerhall and Counting Stars by Atiha Sen Gupta at George Sq.

We can discuss SO mods - but I can't deny StackOverflow has really helped me! http://stackoverflow.com/10m http://stackoverflow.com/users/25251/james

Doing some IE Testing - impressed with http://dev.modern.ie/ these days!

Found 2 websites this week work in Chrome but not FF. Really hope we're not returning to the days of single browser dominance :-(

Broke @OpenTechCal code into separate libraries; get pull request https://github.com/JMB-Technology-Limited/ICalDissect/pull/1 Didn't even know anyone was using that, cool!

What I worked on at #indiewebcamp for @OpenACalendar ...

1 min read

At IndieWebCamp Edinburgh hack day, I worked on a PHP library I'll use for my community calendar work later.

This takes HTML, and parses it for marked up events in either Schema.org or Microformats markup. It returns a set of objects with the raw data.

This will be used for importing events; people will be able to pass a URL of a page with an event on like this one and we'll be able to import it.

It basically works now but needs more fields added and lots more testing with real world examples. On GitHub here!

Edinburgh day 2, the hack day ... breakfast is here, people are arriving ...
